Cool and easy walk through history. A couple moderately steep hills that lasted about a minute.

Very pleasant and well-signed trail. A few interpretive signs along the way. I wish the visitor center was open when I went so I could get a little more historical context. Should probably also hike this in June to get a better idea of what the soldiers had to deal with

Short and easy loop, mostly on gravel trail. Excellent examples of trenches used during Civil War Battle of Richmond. You see many of the same things on the tour road.
